Hi there..I'm a new member...I am writing about my sister...I found this forum and hope I can find some help for her. She has had 6 back surgeries and 3 sets of rods put in her back in the last yr...she initially had hurt her back at work and had surgery years ago and then small rods were put in...as her spine degenerated..her surgeon had put in larger rods...she wound up with a severe life threatening infection that had to be surgically removed from her spine...the infection ultimately ate away at her bones..and the surgeons spent hours reconstructing her spine..6 months after the rods were put in her back..one broke...she had to have both rods replaced again and spinal fusion...it is now 6 months after that surgery...she is suffering in so much pain..she is on pain meds...has tried physical therapy...chiropractics...cold laser therapy..accupuncture..massage..nothing has helped her and she suffers so much...her nerves were cut during surgery and honestly her body is disfigued from all the surgeries. She is a trooper but she is finally getting beaten down by this...So my question to any of you on this board....Is there anything that a person can do for pain management for this type of pain and surgeries? She is willing to try anything to get relief...I will do anything to find it for her...Please help..Thank you so much!!!!!
